PALIN WANTS OBAMA IMPEACHED-OC VO


THANKS NATASHA.

SARAH PALIN IS NOW CALLING FOR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA'S IMPEACHMENT.

IN A COLUMN PUBLISHED ON BREITBART.COM TUESDAY, PALIN ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF "PURPOSEFUL DERELICTION OF DUTY," LIKENING OBAMA'S TREATMENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO THAT OF AN ABUSIVE SPOUSE.

"ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF THE YEARS OF ABUSE FROM THIS PRESIDENT," PALIN, THE FORMER GOVERNOR OF ALASKA AND 2008 GOP VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, WROTE. "HIS UNSECURED BORDER CRISIS IS THE LAST STRAW THAT MAKES THE BATTERED WIFE SAY, 'NO MAS.'"

PALIN SUGGESTED THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS DELIBERATELY LEFT THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER UNSECURED, ECHOING A SIMILAR THEORY FLOATED BY TEXAS GOV. RICK PERRY EARLIER THIS WEEK.

"WITHOUT BORDERS, THERE IS NO NATION," PALIN WROTE. "OBAMA KNOWS THIS. OPENING OUR BORDERS TO A FLOOD OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IS DELIBERATE. THIS IS HIS FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA. IT'S THE ONLY PROMISE HE HAS KEPT."

ON TUESDAY, OBAMA REQUESTED $3.7 BILLION FROM CONGRESS TO ADDRESS THE SITUATION AT THE BORDER. THE FUNDS WOULD HELP IMPROVE SECURITY AT THE BORDER IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING CARE FOR THE CHILDREN WHO HAVE COME INTO THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES' CUSTODY.

PALIN, WHO LAST YEAR SUGGESTED THAT OBAMA COULD BE IMPEACHED OVER THE DEBT LIMIT, ARGUED IN THE TUESDAY COLUMN THAT OBAMA'S "REWARDING OF LAWLESSNESS" HAD CAUSED "IRREPARABLE HARM."

"IT'S TIME TO IMPEACH; AND ON BEHALF OF AMERICAN WORKERS AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS OF ALL BACKGROUNDS, WE SHOULD VEHEMENTLY OPPOSE ANY POLITICIAN ON THE LEFT OR RIGHT WHO WOULD HESITATE IN VOTING FOR ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT," PALIN WROTE. "THE MANY IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES OF BARACK OBAMA CAN NO LONGER BE IGNORED. IF AFTER ALL THIS HE'S NOT IMPEACHABLE, THEN NO ONE IS."

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN , WHO RAN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2008 WITH PALIN AS HIS RUNNING MATE, DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HER CALL FOR OBAMA'S IMPEACHMENT.

"I ALWAYS RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE'S OPINIONS," MCCAIN TOLD THE HUFFINGTON POST DURING A HALLWAY INTERVIEW AT THE CAPITOL.

THE ARIZONA SENATOR SAID HE HADN'T READ PALIN'S COLUMN YET AND HEDGED ON MAKING ANY JUDGMENTS ABOUT IT BEFORE READING IT. STILL, HE DISTANCED HIMSELF FROM HER STANCE.

"AM I PROPOSING THAT THE PRESIDENT BE IMPEACHED? NO," HE SAID. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Little overall changes are expected Wednesday.

Another round of showers and strong storms will begin to develop later on in the afternoon.

The strongest of storms will be primarily inland, south of Lake Okeechobee.

Heavy downpours, small hail and deadly lightning will all accompany those storms.

Can't rule out completely a few isolated showers making their way back towards the coastline before things wrap up into the evening.

Highs this afternoon appear to be on course for the normal.

Many of us will top out in the low 90s Wednesday. With plenty of moisture in place, the feel like temperature will be in the upper 90s.

Showers wind down halfway through the night and clouds thin out before waking up Thursday morning. Overnight lows are forecast to be near seasonal values - hanging in the mid to low 70s.

The remainder of the week will be a very typical summer pattern. Showers and storms in the afternoon with highs staying in the lows 90s. A bit of dry air pushes in Friday helping reduce rain chances a bit. Still mentioning rain Friday just not as widespread. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Little overall changes are expected Wednesday.

Another round of showers and strong storms will begin to develop later on in the afternoon.

The strongest of storms will be primarily inland, south of Lake Okeechobee.

Heavy downpours, small hail and deadly lightning will all accompany those storms.

Can't rule out completely a few isolated showers making their way back towards the coastline before things wrap up into the evening.

Highs this afternoon appear to be on course for the normal.

Many of us will top out in the low 90s Wednesday. With plenty of moisture in place, the feel like temperature will be in the upper 90s.

Showers wind down halfway through the night and clouds thin out before waking up Thursday morning. Overnight lows are forecast to be near seasonal values - hanging in the mid to low 70s.

The remainder of the week will be a very typical summer pattern. Showers and storms in the afternoon with highs staying in the lows 90s. A bit of dry air pushes in Friday helping reduce rain chances a bit. Still mentioning rain Friday just not as widespread. Return to index of stories...

"They do markdowns like 60 to 65%. Some of the same stuff."

SAME **BRAND NAMES** MAYBE.

"This is the type of fabric that it is. It's a silk."

BUT CLOTHING DESIGNER DAVID PECK SAYS. THESE DAYS. **OUTLET** STORE MERCHANDISE IS VERY DIFFERENT.

"Now most of the clothing that you find in outlets is made just for the outlets. It's usually not as good of quality."

GUESS. ANN TAYLOR. COACH. BANANA REPUBLIC. AND COUNTLESS OTHER RETAILERS. MOST PRODUCTS SOLD IN THEIR OUTLET STORES. WERE NEVER SOLD IN THEIR REGULAR RETAIL STORES.

"Are these retailers making knock-offs of their own products?"

"Yes- they're actually making versions of it."

CLOTHING DESIGNER DAVID DANG.

"In order to actually achieve the price point, you really do have to alter the garment a little bit."

"They do that with less expensive zippers and hardware. but the problem comes when retailers try to pass off these lower quality goods. as seconds from their high-end stores."

EARLIER THIS YEAR. FOUR LAWMAKERS ASKED THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION. TO INVESTIGATE PRICING PRACTICES AT OUTLET STORES. CLAIMING RETAILERS MAKE THE CHEAPER OUTLET GOODS. BUT ATTACH HIGH-PRICE TAG BEFORE DISCOUNTING THEM. TO MAKE CUSTOMERS BELIEVE THEY'RE REALLY GETTING A BARGAIN.

"there are ways to tell if products are the real deal or the ones made for outlet stores. but you gotta look closely."

AT ANN TAYLOR, J. CREW AND BANANA REPUBLIC. THE LABELS ON PRODUCTS MADE FOR THE OUTLET HAVE TWO SMALL DIAMONDS OR DOTS BELOW THE BRAND NAME. THERE ARE NO DOTS ON THE LABELS OF THE RETAILERS' REGULAR MERCHANDISE.

TAGS ON BAGS MADE FOR THE COACH OUTLET LOOK LIKE THIS. WITH "EST. 1941" PRINTED UNDER THE LOGO.
